    March 22:  God's Grace Creates Big Givers  Notes / Podcast

    The story of the widow’s mite reminds us that God counts offerings a bit different than we do in the age of recognizing “gold level donors”.  God sees the heart and the percentage of the gift, not the amount.  A must-know text for American Christians, too!

    March 15:  Believe In (The Real) Jesus  Notes / Podcast

    The Pharisees followed hundreds of OT commandments and hundreds more of their own making.  Which mattered the most?  Jesus’ answer, which boils down all of God’s law to two commands, is a perfect guide for our Christian life.  As 1 Cor. 13 points out, we can do many things and accomplish many feat, but without love, it’s nothing.

    March 8:  A Glimpse Of Heaven  Notes / Podcast

    Jesus’ shocking words to the Sadducees about the resurrection of the dead and marriage bother many of us (I won’t be married in heaven?!?).  But, upon further reflection, they are some of the most beautiful words in the NT.  In eternity, we have the joy the angels have, a joy that far supersedes anything even our best earthly relationships gave us.

    March 1:  God & Government  Notes / Podcast

    The political scene was a hot-button issue in 1st century religion, dividing the Herodians and the Zealots and the other religious groups.  Jesus’ brilliant answer reminds us to give the government what it deserves (taxes, honor, obedience, etc.) but reserve our hope, our joy, and our devotion for God alone.

    February 22:  Jesus Loves The Church  Notes / Podcast

    We don’t often picture “meek and mild” Jesus flipping over tables and starting a riot…but he did!  Apparently, Jesus feels very strongly about people using the church for human gain instead of glorifying God and loving people.  The takeaway?  Let’s make sure our church is a house of prayer and not a place for our gain, our glory, etc.

    The Gospels devote tons of time to the last week of Jesus’ life.  He knew he had so little time, so what did he do?  What did he teach?  What was so important that he had to share it before he gave his life on Friday afternoon?  This series teaches Holy Week from selections of Mark 11-14.
